Local family seeks help; mom dies from H1N1 after giving birth

Posted: Updated:

A local father is reaching out for help after his pregnant wife died from complications of the H1N1 virus.

Martha Rodriguez, 29, died last week. She was nine months pregnant when she was admitted to Grossmont Hospital with flu-like symptoms.

She developed pneumonia and was put on a ventilator.

Despite her condition, her baby, Nicholas, was born perfectly healthy before Martha died.

Now Martha’s husband, Jose, is left to raise their family alone. And the family is struggling to pay for Martha’s funeral expenses.

If you are in a position to help, please send donations to:
